Names for New Mojo Trio (Group 3)!
Earlier this month, our Mojo Fans were invited to participate in a survey that would help us come up with the names for our three new Runners that we purchased from the 2017 Keeneland September Yearling Sale. This trio of horses will race for a new Mojo Group (a.k.a. "Mojo Trio, Group 3") later this year.
On January 23, the Jockey Club approved the names we submitted for this new Mojo Trio. And, their registered names are...

As always, we extend our thanks to all Mojo Fans who participated in the naming survey—there were over 50 responses submitted! Be sure to include these horses in your stable mail, and continue to follow their development/racing careers via our Mojo social channels.
"Inviting our Fans to take part in the naming process is a great way to let them be involved in one of the fun aspects Thoroughbred ownership,” explains Mojo's CEM, Fred Taylor. “It also helps us introduce new people to the sport, provide information about the different stages of owning a Thoroughbred racehorse, and highlights the product/services that Mojo offers the general public.”
Last fall, all of the horses completed the first stage of their training to become racehorses: Learning to take a saddle and rider; following directions; being part of a stable of horses; and the daily training routines. They also were asked to complete a short/unofficial breeze (at an eighth of a mile) to evaluate their initial stature.
All three received positive marks from Mojo's Trainer, JR Caldwell. "This is a good group of horses," JR reported. "All three seem to indicate potential as competitive runners."
Raison d'Heat and Iced Out are going through the motions of JR's spring training program, while War Argyle is being held out to get started in late spring/early summer because his pedigree leans more toward turf racing.
Stay tuned for upcoming info about War Argyle, Raison d'Heat, and Iced Out, as well as our other Mojo Runners!
